The Drum Sealer Sprayer is the perfect starter sprayer machine to sealcoat driveways or small parking lots. Whether you want to start a sealcoating business, need a backup unit, or sealing your own asphalt parking lot, you’ll be able to mix and apply sealer professionally.
Low-cost entry with professional application.
Mix and spray sealer from drums.
Designed for large driveways and small parking lots.
This sealer sprayer has two awesome modes of operation:
You can select to turn your ball valve on top of your pump to re-circulate mode. This mixes your sealer in the drum and prepares it for application.
You can also turn the same ball valve to spray mode, which allows you to spray sealer under pressure in a fan shaped pattern. Simply select the desired mode of operation and start sealcoating the pavement.
All our asphalt sealer sprayers have been professionally engineered and have gone through rigorous testing. This provides you with reliability, efficiency and performance you need to get the job done right. They are designed to work with coal tar sealer and specific brands of asphalt emulsion sealer only – please see the Q&A tab for details.
Extremely easy to operate and you don’t need any sealcoating experience to start using it.
The re-circulation system that comes with the Drum Sealer Sprayer works excellent. Simply plug the suction hose into the 55 gallon drum and turn your unit to the mix/circulate mode. Fifty-five gallons of asphalt sealer mixes up in 3 to 4 minutes and is ready to apply.
This complete turn-key pavement sealing machine system can seal coat a 4 car driveway (600 to 700 square feet) in under 15 minutes.
What really matters is that the sealer coming out of the tip applies an even coat, your client is happy and you collect the money for the job and obtain the repeat business.

Yes, simply close the main valve on the bottom of the tote. Disconnect the suction hose from the bottom of the tote and then put that end of the hose in a 5 gallon pail and turn the valve above the pump to spray mode and then start the engine. The pump will suck the water up out of the 5 gallon pail into the pump and down the spray hose out the gun and then spray the water out of the gun back into the 5 gallon pail you just sucked up and you can recirculate it in the pail like this while having the engine on low idle.
Can this system spray sealer with sand in it?
We cannot warranty a system if sand has been used in it as it will wear and ruin the seals. We do however, suggest applying the sand by hand with a grass seeding machine after applying a thin wet coat of sealer and then applying a second coat of sealer over top of the sand layer as a final coat.
Does the system re-circulate as well as agitation systems?
300 gallon metal tanks with sweep agitation blades mostly move the product contents near the outside walls of the storage tank. The heavy paddles usually rotate very slowly and are driven by cumbersome gears, chains, and pulleys. The product near the center of the tank may never even get mixed at all!
To observe this, try this revealing experiment:
First take a can of paint, secondly take a paint stir stick. Now stir the contents using the stir stick only along the inside edge of the paint can slowly. Try to emulate the speed of a paddle moving around the inside of a storage tank. What happens to the contents in the center of the paint can? Hardly moves or mixes at all doesn't it?
The re-circulation system that comes with the AK Tote, Drum, Portable, 130 and 230 Sprayers is absolutely amazing. Your sealer mixes up in 3 to 4 minutes and ready to apply.
What sort of sealer can I spray?
These systems are field-tested with our own brand of Coal Tar asphalt sealer and can be used with specific brands of Asphalt Emulsion sealer. The systems cannot spray sealer with sand.
Coal Tar Emulsion
Asphalt Emulsion (AE): GemSeal, Sealmaster and Neyra sealers only without the addition of any latex additives
We can't guarantee the performance of the systems with other people's sealer because they may add additives that we don't know about that could affect the performance of the pump, hoses, circulation, etc. We use the industry's best-quality sealer and we can assure you that you will not have any issues with it; if you wish to use another brand of sealer please contact the manufacturer to guarantee performance with your spray system.
The sealer is suddenly just trickling out of my spray tip. What caused this?
If a chunk of sealer, a stone, or a rock is blocking the output of the tip, it would create a blockage in the tip that would create a trickle or a pressurized multi-stream spray. Sealer sitting in the tank for a long period of the tank can dry on the side walls and form flakes. These flakes can fall into the rest of the sealer and get suctioned through to your spray tip, causing a blockage.
This usually happens due to the tip clogging or if the tip is worn out past a usable point. Make sure to clean your spray tips after every sealcoat job. Buy new spray tips and invest in a filter kit to prevent clogged spray tips.
What type of engine oil should I use? How much oil is needed?
Any standard 4-stroke motor can be used. Like the ones used for lawn mowers, snow blowers, etc.
For Launtop engines, 5W-40 is recommended and you can fill up to the level of oil gauge which is about 0.5 Liter. For Honda engines, you can use 10W-30 or the 5W-30 during the cold season - around 0.55-0.6 Liter depending on the model.
Please refer to the manual included with your purchase.
How do I prime the pump? How often should I do it?
Pump priming is simple. As long as there is constant liquid reaching the pump, it will prime and pump. The less air in the suction hoses the better the pump will prime and work.
When transferring sealer from drums to the main spray system tank make sure the transfer kit hose is completely full of water. Connect the barrel pipe to the transfer kit and then the other end of the transfer kit to the suction port of the pump and make sure the transfer kit hose remains full of water. Put the barrel pipe into the sealer drum. Make sure the ball valve handles are in transfer mode. Start your motor and begin your transfer.
The pump only needs to be primed the first time you use it or if you haven't used your pump for longer than 24 hours. Use 1 gallon of water in the pump through the pump orifice allows the machine to immediately push that liquid through, creating enough force to start pulling sealer from the tank.
If air is hitting your pump at anytime it will lose prime and the chances of burning up your seals are high. Make sure water or sealer is always reaching your pump.
If the pump is leaking between the engine and the motor, it's usually caused when the pump overheats, due to running the pump dry. The main master seal heats up and shrivels up, creating small cracks. Always make sure you run some kind of liquid in your pump, whether it be sealer or water during priming.
I'm getting foam on top of my sealer.
The cause of this is over-agitating the sealer. Only recirculate your sealer for 2-3 minutes max at the beginning of the day and maybe for a minute at the beginning of each job.
My system is not agitating.
You get this when the sealer is too thick and the pump cannot create a prime to circulate the sealer. Dilute it properly to achieve 20 to 30% water dilution.
Use a dipstick to check the level of your sealer at the end of the day and the next time you use your system, just in case of water evaporation (if the levels are different, add enough water to regain the previous sealer level).
Another possible reason could involve the system's ball valve. On the output part of the pump, there's a ball valve that allows you to redirect the sealer to the top of the tank or to the spray gun. If that ball valve is constantly or permanently broken to the spray gun, you wouldn't get recirculation.
Can the AK55 be used with oil-based sealer?
No, none of Asphalt Kingdom's spray systems can be used with oil-based sealer.
If I use coal tar sealer with gem seal rapid set, would there be any issues when cleaning up pump and line?
You can put the rapid set into the material, but the material needs to be used completely within 48 hours. After you have finished using it, do a fresh water flush as usual.
Hello i bought a ak spray sytem and the filter kit.can you please tell me where i attach the filter kit thanks.
We recommend that you have the filter "pointing" down, that way gravity will help move particulates out of the way of the main flow.
The filter connects to the output port of the pump, and then your spray hose connects to the filter kit. Steps on how to assemble the Filter Kit:
Insert filter into main valve, close camlocks, insert cotter pins
Insert spray hose into other end of filter, close camlocks, insert cotter pins.
Are your prices in canadian funds ? As I live in Sudbury ontario
Please check https://www.actionseal.com, our Canadian site, for prices in Canadian dollars.
Can the AK55 use a sealer with a filter?
Yes, the AK55 could come with a filter that you can attach to the spray system.
Is this self priming?
No. You will need to prime the system first before using it, then mix your sealer with a drill mixer prior to turning on your machine.
Where does the filter kit mount too? the pump or the top of the barrel?
The filter connects to the output port of the pump, and then your spray hose connects to the filter kit.
